The work of Oscar Dotter has been described as "punk rock meets the paintbrush," as well as "jet fueled and hand crafted like a Howard Hughes aircraft."

Originally hailing from Finland and having grown up in Oregon, Oscar has lived in New York City since 1998. He often draws inspiration from retro and vintage themes, contrasted with bright backdrops of bold coloring, often with a touch of vulgarity.

A self-taught painter and photographer, Oscar typically works on canvas with heavy acrylic and oil paints, often incorporating other elements such as charcoal, silicon, leather, coffee, tea, plastics, textiles and urine.

Having painted his entire life, Oscar has also produced art and visual installations for various corporations and individuals throughout the New York City region.

Oscar works out of his Huh What Art Studio located in Chelsea, New York. Various pieces of his collection can be found at
